RICHMOND, VANCOUVER BC- October 1, 2015– Award-winning and inspiring business leader and financial services expert, Perminder Chohan has posted a new article on the Desjardins Financial Security Independent Network website entitled, “Business is Riskier Without Insurance Coverage.Going into business is a calculated risk that people launch into all the time, many of who forego business insurance.

Small business owners may believe they are saving money by not getting insurance. However, as Chohan states, “Going into business is risky all on its own. And, in the best-case scenario if nothing ever goes wrong in your business, insurance coverage certainly provides peace of mind.” The calculated risk of going into business must include the eventuality that something will go wrong. As Mr. Chohan points out, “On the other hand, if and when something does happen, having the right kind of coverage will help you keep moving forward without skipping a beat.”

Chohan acknowledges, “Business insurance needs vary greatly. Yours may be a business that requires lots of equipment that could break down or even be stolen. Or you could be responsible for not sharing sensitive information received from you clients. It’s important to seek advice from an insurance broker or agent who is familiar with your specific type of business.”

As an overview for those business owners considering whether to pursue insurance coverage, Mr. Chohan provides a list of various types of business insurance coverage from the Canada Business Network.
